History of the Monterey

The Monterey Motel made its mark on the Mother Road beginning in 1946. The motel’s founder, Norman Bugg, saw the promise of Route 66 and provided travelers local hospitality along their journey down the “road to opportunity.” We invite our guests to relive and recapture that spirit of history and adventure. Tap into the unique atmosphere of Route 66 and ABQ at the Monterey Motel.
